oh finally normal hltv user with working brain who suggested -Jackz instead of -Amanek
-Hunter +awper is the non-biased move, trying to build a team around two star riflers simply doesn’t work.
if i remember correctly niko was entrying when he was in faze
Very nice thread, so professional and accurate. Only thing that i am not buying is torzsi as an awper, not bcz of his skill, bcz there is no way mous is letting him.He’s destined to stay in mous/mouz nxt believe me. Signing cerq/poizon/nawkk maybe or even going for the kennyS again ( but unfortunately i think he’s gone). Sad thing is that they could easily sign guy like deko but his english is shit, its very hard to find an CIS Awper who has great english.
Agree. Even though I like jackz as a player I think g2 needs an experienced main awp. But who would be available? There are not many awpers free and most are in fix teams unlikely to leave them
and where do they get the money for a star awper?
>torzsi (when his ban gets lifted)
not a star awper
kick amanek, + any awper best than him
I agree with this, but idk about torszi. Maybe some higher experienced awper
Stoped reading at niko anchor
Imagine putting a active lurker in the most passive role
+1 Actually. Make NiKo entry and huNter- as star player.
G2 was doing fine for quite some time and I still think if NiKo suceeded with AWP it would be great.
If G2 bring in star AWper, in my opinion, it would collide with NiKo (star rifler+star awp, and there's some ego involved).
If Niko play pure entry, with his firepower potential, uhm, wouldn't it be the thing opponents will adapt to? Imagine his entry sucess being bellow 60%? 40% of rounds would be on awp shoulders if Hunter and Nexa keep their current form.
I think you proposed excellent moves btw. I just think someone like FalleN is a must for G2. He would not collide with Niko, he could call (passive awpers are usually last to die), and he would be upgrade from Amanek's AWP (which is obviously not very good, maybe because he is not natural AWPer but still).
So if G2 lose entry+support they need either 2 replacements, someone like Hyp9x + awp like FalleN and it can work.
Only think I don't understand is how exactly you get from losing vs NaVi in finals after you beat Gambit and other top contenders, being in good shape, and after just few months you can't compete with t2.
Props to OP one more time, really good discussion!
Putting NiKo as an entry is horrible. They might get more 4v4 or even 4v3 situations but other bots in the team couldn't close the round.
I think the French duo hold the team down so hard, the Balkan core trio is definitely top5 material if they have the correct other two pieces
Who will be on your list? Players from ex-Yugoslav only, especially those that can speak Serbian (or Croatian/Bosnian/Montenegrin):
Loba - IGL
? - AWP
Kassad+ Legija - Coach + Analyst
amanek 2nd caller? has he called before? i would rather make NiKo 2nd caller since he called for quite a while in faze
+smooooooya is best solution
Nexa is not an insane lurker lmaoo
finally someone with a brain
+1 finally one user with brain, gz
G2 after Major:
+CIS youngster awper +another guy that knows how to shoot
Nexa to another role, keep Balkan trio to not ruin ecosystem.
When NiKo and Hunter are dried off of profit, you can start making good changes
nah,torszi doesn't have experience in t1 at all
This whole thing has one big problem, too much of the twisted roles of this roster are being kept.
I'd go for removing more players and go for a full rebuild rather than patch holes again.
Nexa IGL, anchor
And m0nesy star player
bro they had a star AWPer...
They made him an ultra passive support AWP who had to always flash for his team and juggle around nades instead of finding picks.
G2's gamestyle doesn't allow for a star AWPer to be there.
although i would hate for anyone, especially JaCKz to get kicked, i gotta agree that he will be one of the oldest players in a few years, therefore he'll need to get benched in a short amount of time...
For TLDR mens:
- boomer JaCkz + good AWPer is the only 200 IQ roster move
stoped reading at "NiKo - Entry"
Torzsi more likely to go to mouz main team, but I do completely agree with you, an option imo could be broky if G2 can buy him off faze
NiKo is not anchor at all and never been. Their anchor is nexa
Nah, NiKo is too good to be an entry, he has more impact to the team the more he stays alive. JaCkz is easily one of the best entries. People don't realize that an entry fragger is more like a support role, both NiKo and hunter are excellent riflers and i think with the current roster they are finding the space to make plays and develop as payers. People start this discussion every single time G2 loses a match, kinda geting repetitive. As per the awper situation, Amanek is insanely versatile and manages to find impact in other ways, i don't think every team needs a flashy awper. We need to take into account all the changes this team went through and then it's easier to understand why they may struggle to adapt to their new situation, asking to cut heads avery time they lose doesn't help
